This week involved a different type of work. Normally we work for ourselves so we are pretty flat out and don't really relax too much. This week was completely different. We worked for a big plumbing company doing a job that involved digging a trench across Glyndeburn road, which is a busy four lane road.
The first day we got there and they had forgotten to organize traffic management to shut down lanes and divert traffic so from 7:30am till 1:30 we sat around and did absolutely nothing and got paid a ridiculous hourly rate. Once the traffic management finally got there and set everything up we did about two hours work and had to be off the road again. We were only allowed on the road between 9 and 4 so they were very cushy hours. Jobs like that are good to have every once in a while but too often and I would definitely get bored.
